About the app
This app has been developed by an Australian economics educator and is designed for senior secondary (or 1st year university) students of economics. It provides hours of practice completing multiple choice tests, as well as valuable assistance understanding the key elements of any senior economics course. The explanations provided for the majority of questions will help students to know why they went wrong. More importantly, the explanations provide an effective ‘learning tool’ and are designed to help students develop or consolidate their understanding of each area of the course. The app contains a total of 75 multiple choice tests (750 questions in total), broken down into the 15 separate categories below:
1. Introductory concepts (40)

There is no need to waste time when travelling to or from school, or when out and about with a few minutes to spare. Test your understanding of the course and learn as you go!! Completing all of the questions and heeding the advice/information provided within the explanations is one sure way to improve your examination performance in this subject.
If you are having trouble understanding how the market mechanism works, or what is meant by a market failure, or you simply need more practice handling questions related to the external sector, this App will provide you with loads of support. It is one investment you cannot afford to pass up!
